Is it true that it is now possible to look at your neighborhood from space (by satellite pix) on Google, for free? Does this include Canadian towns?

If this is true, could someone please direct me to the page?

Cool, it works. What I don't see, however, is a possiblity to zoom in. I read you would actually be able to look at individual houses (from a bird's eye view of course). Maybe they don't have this feature yet.

You may also want to see this. In my city individual buildings are recognizable.

If you zoom into ORD it looks like you can see one of the presidential 757's taxiing

If you look at Norfolk, you can all sorts of navy ships, but you can't see the numbers on the couple aircraft carriers. If you look at the base in Coronado, you can see CVN-74 USS John C Stennis


Very cool!
